Glass Galaxy Pendants
I've been playing around with painting glass for pendants as well as making more doll shoes. With Anime St. Louis two weeks away, I figured I should actually bunker down and get to work. I've been able to get my hands on some new feet sizes for doll shoes, so be sure to check out my commission page for which sizes I can make :)
I'm still in love with anything and everything galaxy and tried my hand at painting some galaxy glass pendants. I originally wanted to use actual photos of nebulae and space, but it seems so run-of-the-mill to slap an image onto a pendant.
To make these pendants, I used nail polish (metallic looks awesome), acrylic paint, gloss varnish and mica powder. The mica powder does absolute wonders for a subtle shimmer. The glass cabs and necklace parts are all from Sun & Moon Crafts, which I did a tiny review of in February.
I wasn't sure how these would turn out so I didn't take any progress photos for a tutorial, but I will next time! Been a while since I did a tutorial so this should be fun. I also have a few new tools to review for all you aspiring artists.
